Question from Sandee

Do you think Gotham’s stainless steel fry pan is safe to use? My husband wants a pan as close to nonstick as possible.

The pan is billed as nonstick ceramic/copper/ titanium, PTFE/PFOA/PFOS-free, tri-ply reinforced stainless induction base.


Lisa’s Answer


The company did not respond to my request for additional information on the materials used in their pans but I’m guessing that it is a quasi ceramic coating.  You can read here about research that shows that quasi ceramic coatings released titanium dioxide nanoparticles into food and that chronic exposure to these nanoparticles can lead to immune disruption and pre-cancer lesions in the gut.  Again, I can’t say for certain that these pans use this coating, but I find that things that seem too good to be true, often are.
